You’d maybe liken me to Bridget Jones, because I’ll admit, I have those big-ass Spanx……the Primark version though because who actually buys the Spanx ones?However, the chances of two upper class toffs fighting in Sefton Park lake over me is about as likely as Red Rum winning the 2018 Grand National.
Maybe my perception has something to do with the way I, like so many others, grew up under the pressure of pervasive heteronormativity.
That is to say: be heterosexual and heteroromantic; fulfil your pre-judged role before, during, and after dating; learn some rules; and follow some linear sets of A-to-B patterns of sex and romance.
Trigger Warnings: Abusive relationships, Sexual and Romantic Pressure, Bullying, Family Issues, Trans Fetishisation For those interested in dating, we all have different complicating factors in who and how we like to date, and in our own social and economic positions.
It’s like any other activity in that ever-shifting complexity.
Oh, unless you include the charming use of ‘gay’ as a peer insult.
